After meeting thousands of Startups and organising hundreds of meetups & Events, TechMeetups has designed the Startup Clinics to help Startups make the most of one evening and learn as much as they can, get valuable feedback and make those important connections.
It brings in the best of mentoring, speed dating, wisdom of the crowd and networking all packed into one evening to remember.
Firstly there’s the one to one mentoring with experts in the field. Whether its a marketing guru or a successful startup, we have various mentors willing to provide their time & expertise to help startups get off the ground.
Apart from these sessions then there are the Demo sessions in which Startups are given the opportunity to demo what they are working on to get valuable input from the group. 100 minds are always better than one.
We then break off for light networking to help startups, entrepreneurs mingle with developers and investors so that those deep connections are made that can really help your Startup.
So if you’re a Startup, Entrepreneur, Developer, a Wantrepreneur or just want to observe come on over and get involved in the Startup movement.
